The Art Department at Judson High School wanted to showcase some of the great artwork that students submitted at recent competitions. That included winning entries in the Western Art Competition and the VASE (Visual Art Scholastic Event). The art pieces were on display in the Diamond J rotunda for fellow students and faculty to see. Amazing stuff!
Congratulations to the Wagner Art Department students for their performance at this year’s Visual Arts Scholastic Event, also known as VASE. With a total of 42 entries this year, Wagner brought home 40 first place medals. Three students are advancing to the State level competition. Congratulations to Joseph Casas, Marvin Valenzuela, and Alexandrew Sanchez for making it to state. The amazing art work will be on display in the library for all to see and enjoy.
The Metzger Middle School Honors Band and Symphonic Band recently competed in the UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest at Burbank High School and did a tremendous job. Both groups came away with Superior Ratings in their concert performance and sight reading ability. That means they earned the coveted "Sweepstakes" award. Congratulations to these students under the direction of John Roberson and Bryant Aynes.

There's nothing like hearing the sounds of young voices singing in a great venue like the Performing Arts Center. The Judson ISD Elementary Honor Choir performed recently at the PAC and it was a sweet sound the soul. Here are a few pictures from the performance.
The Woodlake Hills Wildcat Symphonic Band has earned the highest marks from the latest UIL Band Contest. The competition held at Burbank High School evaluates school bands both on a performance level and in sight-reading...that's reading and playing music the students have not seen before. This is the first time in 13 years that this group (non-varsity band) has earned top honors (Superior Ratings) in their classification in both performance and sight-reading.
These students attend weekly sectional rehearsals that start at 7 am (WOW!) Monday through Thursday since the beginning of the year, on top of their class rehearsals and individual practice at home. What a payoff!! We congratulate them on this achievement.
